This looks so much like a Mincer's Special, not a Tracey Mincer, but one of the seconds sold at Mincer's Pipe Shop in Charlottesville, back in 1961. I had a couple, but the more I think about it, the less I think the Specials had anything written on them at all except "Imported Briar". I think they were Comoy's or Sasieni seconds, but I'm not sure. They were sold in a big basket by the cash register, just a jumble of shapes and sizes. Seems I had a billiard and an apple, but can't really say. This looks just like those pipes. I saw it on ebay, with just a few minutes left and nobody wanted it! Looked pretty decent, so I sprung for $12 including shipping. I mean -- how bad can it be? I can make believe I have one of my Mincer's Specials back!
